Listening to Third Grandmother’s Stories

Directed, Photographed, edited by: Wen Hui

75 min. /2011


Filmmaker’s words:

While searching for the memories that my entire family has forgotten, I found my third grandmother. She is the only one of my grandparent’s generation still living. She is my father’s aunt, my great-aunt, but neither my father nor my family ever mentioned her to me. Last winter I found her in a village in the mountains of Yunnan. Her name is Su Meiling and she is eighty-three years old. When I met her it was as if she had been waiting her whole life for me to come. Waiting for eighty-three years. I stayed with her and she began to tell me about her life. Through her stories I could see how China’s great changes changed one woman’s life.
